Here's the prompt for today: the delivery.
And here's the view looking south from our outdoor living room, as promised yesterday:
The idea was born when we unloaded our couch while moving in and put it out there temporarily while we made space for it inside. Then when Kat's parents new couch and armchair arrived, we salvaged the old couch and loveseat and stuck them down there. The picture was taken while sitting on the loveseat; the chairs and table you see used to reside on our balcony in Vancouver.
I think they're much happier here.
I think it's pretty neat that I can see America from out there (the border is just over the nearest hill, around where the shadow starts).
"Have you been waiting long for the delivery?" The question was asked with gentle sympathy. The man had obviously been in his friend's position himself.
"Only a couple of hours," his companion replied, head hanging between sagging shoulders. "But it feels like weeks!"
"I know exactly how you feel - when ours was delayed by a day I thought I wouldn't make it! Worst twenty-four hours of my life. Can I do anything to help?"
"Thanks for the offer, but nothing can console me right now. This is bloody miserable. I'm almost regretting doing it."
"Don't talk crazy!" his friend said, sitting bolt upright in his shock. "Just hang in there buddy, your 60 inch flat screen TV will be here any minute now."
